This is a phenomenal and fantastically entertaining tour. Eddie is simply the best. One of the best tours I have ever taken. Lots of sites, human interest, history and things you dont normally see. The villages are great. The wind mills are fascinating and the lunch place takes you to is some of the best food we had in Greece. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, this company and of course Eddie. He keeps the groups small, in fact, he 3 other people booked on this one that had to cancel and he still took me and my wife out. We became friends that day, and I hope to see Eddie again some day!!

Eddie was entertaining and informative. We loved learning from him and the olive factory, Zeus cave snd the small towns and sampling the agriculture, especially the strawberry picking. The lunch in Moxos was delightful. Eddie was especially helpful to us in getting our Covid test. He made us feel like we had a old friend in Greece!

The BEST tour we have experienced

最高のガイドツアーです。ツアーガイドのエディーはとても陽気で、大変よくもてなしてくれました。私たちはツアーを始めて以来の2グループ目の日本人だったとのことですが、クレタの人々とはとても波長が合うように感じました。ツアー自体はアメリカやロシア、ドイツなどからの来客が多いそうです。5-6人からなる小グループのツアーで構成されており、自由で気配りの行き届いたツアーをしてくれています。車で移動時も飽きさせないトークや地元の背景知識などをわかりやすく話してくれてとても楽しかったです。数えきれないほどの思い出ができましたが、なかでも移動中にたまたま出くわした地元の方に、獲れたてのメロンやキュウリなどをふるまってもらったことが印象的でした。ツアー料金に含まれているジュースやワイン、ランチも大変満足のいくものでしたので、日本の方でイラクリオンへの旅行を計画されている方には是非お勧めいたします。 The BEST guide tour! If you want an experience as if you visit your Cretan friend to take you to his favorite places while sharing tips to enjoy Crete, you should book this tour. Eddie, a guide of this tour, is a very cheerful, knowledgeable, passionate and professional person. He takes care of all participants very well and makes all efforts to make your experience special. One of the most impressive experiences during the tour is that we had fresh fruits and vegetables which were just harvested from trees or fields. All spots he took us were very nice and gave us lots of fun and memories.

Eddie was one of the best guides I have ever had! He was the perfect balance of professional, humorous, generous, and polite. He was very knowledgeable about Greek history and also was in tune with the current cultural climate. I highly recommend an of his tours! This one is great if you want to see the real Crete with someone who has a lot of experience living here.

I cannot recommend this trip enough, honestly any tour with Eddie is going to be amazing! He made us feel like old friends coming to visit and the places he took us were once in a lifetime experiences. If you want to see local places and beat the crowds, Eddie is your guy. My husband and I will definitely be coming back to Crete, just to do another tour!

We can’t find enough words to express how happy we were with the tour!!! Eddie was the best tour guide ever! He has a great sense of humor and he is very knowledgeable about the history and Greek mythology! He spent the entire day with us (including coming up to the Zeus cave. We’ve learned a lot about Greece, history, Crete. We had a small group tour - which makes the difference! At the end of the tour we had an incredible late lunch at the family restaurant in one of the villages and it was absolute best food we’ve tried in Crete. At the end of the tour Eddie gave us a bottle of the olive oil from his own olive trees as a gift. It was one of the best tours we’ve ever taken in Europe! Highly recommend!!!
